It goes without saying, probably, that my favourite things at the Gogo Philip blogger party were amongst the most ostentatious.
Still, at least I have two ways to wear palm tree earrings now – all-out totally tropical with the giant door-knocker version and my Vans snapback or relatively tasteful with the simple drop style and my wear-daily dream red lipstick, Topshop’s Rio Rio.
Isn’t it funny how you get something new and then wonder how you ever lived without it? Much as I love my door-knockers the other earrings have, over the course of two days, become my summer essential – a little bit of Hawaiian tropic in sunny south east London. They’re ~fun but not too kooks – perfect summer earrings really.
Did you know that Gogo Philip now has a standalone store on Brick Lane? Much as I enjoy a rummage through their concession in Topshop, it’s lovely to see them grow into a big old space of their own. It’s just by Beyond Retro at 68 Cheshire Street.
